Jesus had a particularly good self-image, and it was not going to bother him what others thought. He had a mission in this world and nothing nor anyone was going to stand in the way. Jesus is asking that we remain focused as to our mission in life. We are in this world yet at the same time we cannot be of this world. In other words, this world has some very definite attitudes, has some very definite directions, yet we have very blessed attitudes, Beatitudes, and we have been given a map.
